Made my Day


Yesterday was a bad day. Until this...

I found a few minutes yesterday to check out some of my favorite blogs and saw that my friend Roeshel over at Evangeline's Vine was given the "One Lovely Blog Award". This made me happy...she deserves to be recognized for the gorgeous work she and her husband are doing to their charming old farmhouse. Then I kept reading and realized that she bestowed the award (in true blogger pay-it-forward fashion) on some of her favorite blogs...and guess what? I was one of them!!!! Yay!!! How exciting...Roeshel thinks I'm lovely:) (Well, ok, she thinks this blog is lovely...all 15 posts of it...she can't think I'm lovely - she hasn't seen my hair in person.)

What a great honor! Thank you so much, Roeshel! You are one of the people that inspired me to stop thinking about it and actually start making this blog. And you comment on every single one of my posts! Sometimes even twice:) Your dedication to the blog (and nestie) world is admirable and much appreciated. Your DIY projects are insane. You even started a new blog (The DIY Show Off) to give others out there a forum for sharing their Before and After pics and projects. You have a barn on your land and I am jealous! You totally made my day (ok, my whole month) by giving me this award. To be recognized by someone as awesome as you is just really cool.

(Check out the pics and links below to see just how awesome Evangeline's Vine is!)

Drumroll please....It is now my great pleasure to hereby bestow the "One Lovely Blog Award" to these fabulous ladies and their fabulous blogs. First, I'd like to start with some old friends:

Why you should run over and check out Evangeline's Vine!

{When I saw Roeshel's amazing mudroom makeover, I knew I had to be friends with her!}

{Then, she redid her bathroom and I knew this girl had good taste!}

{She turned these plain white snack trays into a personalized spot for her and her husband's keys}

{Look what happened when she got her hands on her husbands urn and herbs!}

{I love these planters she turned into house numbers with paint and vinyl letters!}
